We always eat way too much as my Mom loves to cook for us. She is a food pusher and has real success with us. All the beautiful summer veggies are in season now plus, she has a fancy new kitchen which made it great fun.
Mom and I spent one afternoon trying to make my Grandmother’s recipe for fried apple pies! I made my usual pie dough. She used dried apples (like Nana used to do) and reconstituted them with some water, cinnamon, and sugar. I was worried that because I use butter and no shortening or lard in my dough that they might not fry up well. I had been thinking about this for awhile and wondered how baking them would turn out. Mom thinks I am weird but went along with me and I baked half and she fried half. Grant and I liked the baked ones best and called those turnovers. I noticed the rest of the family gravitated towards the fried ones. Both were quite delicious! I am anxious to try these with peaches this summer!
